EU Budget

Put to him by the Telegraph that the Prime Minister had seemed a bit grumpy this morning, the Prime Minister's Official Spokesman (PMOS) said no he had not been grumpy. The Prime Minister had in fact enjoyed the opportunity to disagree with the line taken by the Daily Telegraph and had put the case very strongly. He felt very strongly that if you did believe in enlargement then you should pay your fair share in doing so. That had been the foundation of our approach, not only to enlargement but to the budget deal as a whole.

Asked for the Prime Minister's view was on the recommended changes to the categorisation of murder, the PMOS said that the Government had asked the Law Commission for their report and we would study it because it was a serious report and a serious piece of analysis. We encouraged people to contribute to the consultation process which was now being launched by the Law Commission.
